My name is Lisa Bradley and I am the co-ordinator for the Business Pathway. The Business Pathway allows students to experience some of the courses on offer at Queen’s Business School, such as Accounting, Economics, Finance and Business Management. This will give you the chance to engage with academics and likeminded students. Our courses are very highly regarded, frequently ranked in the top 200 in the world, and top 10 in the UK for various subjects within the school. For more information, see the sections below.

  • What do I need to participate in the Business Pathway?

    We would advise that all students check the academic entry requirements (GCSE, A-Levels or equivalent) for each course before applying for their Pathway.  Many courses specify that you must have achieved a specific grade at a specific level in order to be considered for a place on the undergraduate programme. Therefore, it is important that you clarify this information as early as possible in order to avoid disappointment.
